We picked up DGD from school yesterday & because her daddy was working late DD came to pick her up. DGD had a suggestion that we all play cards so we sat down and played Uno! We had planned to go out to eat at a nice little local place but DD ordered pizza for us while we played. It turned into a wonderful fun filled family evening after DSnL came by & joined us too. I love hearing my 8 yr. old DGD laugh when she beats Papa in a hand. I'm just an old softy when it comes to her!

Got my second Pfizer COVID-19 shot this morning!

This really won't change anything in my behavior until about a month after DW also has both of her shots but at least it is progress.

Had a delivery of some radio control airplane stuff and played with that some in the basement, three radio receivers and two ESCs (electronic speed controls) for some airplanes that have yet to be delivered. Before I start building an airplane I like to have everything available for trial fitting and such.

Got notices from both the IRS and the State of Louisiana, that the info I submitted via TurboTax for payments with my 2020 tax returns, was incorrect. They submitted the account number to the bank and the bank said no such account.

Well I know I still have an account! I log into it every day. So, I probably gave them the wrong number. I went online and paid both again, re-copying the account number and routing number from one of my checks. If these payments get kicked back, I'll try using a credit card.

This is DEFINITE proof that I am now older than Methuselah! Gee. What a milestone.

What happened to using eftps.gov to pay your Federal taxes? We just tell TurboTax we are paying separately and use EFTPS to schedule the 1040 payment for April 15.

It seems that COVID-19 shot had an effect. Nothing terrible, but I slept off and on for much of the day. Very mild arm soreness, I don't even notice it unless I lie on it.

Tried to find a new bedspread as the 20 yr old one needs replacing. Now they sell comforters instead that are too small.

Making lasagne, pull apart cheese bread, and brownie ice cream cheese cake (layer brownies then ice cream the magic shell ..... works as long as GS1 cuts it as cold magic shell is hard to cut) for family dinner (just the 9 of us)

Those are the engine options for the Bronco Sport that is already being sold. The Bronco Sport is the smaller version of the Bronco. The full size has not started production yet. I'm getting a full size Big Bend package with a 2.7L. Ford is having several supply chain issues on the full size Bronco. I don't have a clue when I'll get it.

Took a 30 min drive over to the nearest "cultural" city and had lunch at favorite Mexican place. Then went to a VW dealer and test drove an VW Atlas, then to a Jeep dealer after that test drove a Grand Cherokee. Both VERY nice cars, but I am leaning toward the GC for a near purchase. Headed back home, picked up some really good Cabernet on sale at the State run Packy's (a New England term), then to the grocery store to get seafood for dinner tonight. Then home to a frenzied greeting by the two fur kids who are not used to us being away for 4+ hours.....

Completed a refinancing application for our mortgage.

Went back and forth between paying it off quickly from retirement accounts (about 5 years) and refinancing. Have decided on refinancing, but reducing the term from 30 years to 15 or 20. The shorter term also helps with getting enough of a rate reduction to make it work.
